Default Are you a Military Veteran?

Not that you are not loved either way,and no shame in either answer, but Stevo asked if there was a way to post a poll on this subject (As tied to the New Hampshire Veterans post)
Did a little research and thought I'd give it a try.

Are you a veteran: Yes or No or choose your branch if you like.

USN was not a job. It was an adventure that if I were to do life over again I would definitely include.

USN '90 to '94, based out of sunny San Diego CA. 4 years in, finished out as an ABH2(AW). Flight deck crew aboard an aircraft carrier. By far the coolest job ever. What a rush it was however after two very long deployments for two different conflicts, crappy pay, long hours and Clinton as a "boss"... yeah I was all set with that and punched out.

Great experience I'll never regret, chilling and sobering to be 18 years old and in a war zone. There is NOTHING quite like coming back to the USA after seeing how uncivilized and violent the rest of the world can be.

.....regretfully, no military service probably because I was eighteen years old and I hit a #303 out of 365 in the Viet Nam draft lottery back on April 1, 1970, and everyone higher than a 180 was supposedly not to be drafted ..... hut-hut-hut ..... and something like 56,000 American G.I.'s and 2,000,000 Vietnamese got killed in the Viet Nam War between 1966-1974.

I can remember walking over to the Guild's Drug at the corner of Fairfield and Newbury, where deLuca's is now, and buying a Herald to check for my draft lottery number, and what a relief, feeling like I won it big with a #303 ..... no worries man!

.....otherwise you just know I really really wanted to join the Marines as a pvt so's I could be the point man......way out-front... on the rat patrol ...... crawling through the hot, wet, bamboo jungle just south of the dmz... creeping and crawling through the jungle with an ar-15 cradled across my arms and a big 16" bowie knife clinched between my teeth .....
aaaarrrrrrrgggggghh!!! ...... just waiting on the next black pajama charlie out in the jungle there to show ....... but no way Jose ..... was not to be .... now that I hit it big with a #303.

You know that the boxer, Muhammad Ali .....'the mouth from the south' .... www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeFMyrWlZ68 ....lost his championship title, and went to prison for three years or so starting in '67 because he refused to get drafted into the Army .... or something.... about the same time.... it was big news ... and today Viet Nam has dedicated a statue for him.

In 1970 my dad was a 55-year old lieutenant commander with 2 1/2 stripes- USNR, having served from '42-'45 active, and in the reserves from '46-'74, and if he he told me once, he told me a hundred times to stay out of the military. He died in 2010, at age 95, and now has a dark blue 'U S Navy' baseball cap resting on top of his dead body chest, inside the coffin, because he really liked the Navy.

I think I probably speak for all the forum members in expressing my heartfelt thanks to all military veterans for your service, and for the sacrifices you have made. It's because of you that the USA is the best country on the planet!

US Army 1971-1974, 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade, HAWK Missile Battalion as a result of Draft Lottery #76. After training in Fort Dix, NJ, and Fort Bliss, TX, to track and shoot down enemy aircraft, I was stationed in Southeast.....Florida, where we went on high alert, just in case there was an attack launched from Cuba, whenever Nixon visited his buddy Bebe Rebozo on Key Biscayne.

Exclamation Great "Work"—Quick Advancement—Drug-free Mandatory...

USN/USNR—a "Spook".

(Shhhh...)



The job was so compelling, I extended my enlistment a year for more technical training. Great years—still communicate with buddies.

Toured Europe on 24¢ a gallon gas...

There's nothing quite as sobering as to read the sign, "Achtung—Minen" from your car.

(Unless it's peering down the barrels of Russian tanks at a closed border control point in Europe).

I'd thank each and every one of you individually but I only have so many "thanks" per day

My father was a US Navy 2nd Lieutenant during the Korean War and I'm a proud member of the DAR through my paternal grandmother's family. I was a young girl during the Viet Nam era - so many thanks to all of you who kept me safe and who continue to provide us with all the freedoms we enjoy today

Probably not very good at making polls. In fact I just figured out the basics when STEVO made the request. As written, the poll only lets you post once. I gave a generic option of "Yes" for those who may prefer not to mention their branch. So it's the total of all the yes and all the branches. Sorry for any confusion.

USAF 1967 - 1971

55th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, Offutt AFB NB.

Worked on the RC-135 Recon birds.

Each time I think of my time or write of my time I always have a tear in my eye for the 19 friends that I lost on a very bad day for our unit. It was the day we lost the bird Rivet Amber, call sign Irene 92, with all crew on board. 5-June-1969. Six of those nineteen I worked with directly. They are the six sergeants shown in the second crew photo at the page I linked to.

There is a very good story written by Kingdon R. "King" Hawes Lt Col, USAF (Ret.)

It's The Tail of Two Airplanes. Found here: http://www.rc135.com/0000/INDEX.HTM

The story of Rivet Amber starts on page 10 found here: http://www.rc135.com/0000/INDEX006.HTM


I thank all those who served in the military and those who did not for their support.

Default I was stationed at Eielson AFB from 1967 to 1972...

I was an Air Traffic Controller working in the Control Tower at Eielson, and remember well the 6th SW, and the 55th SRW. From our perch 108 ft above the tarmac, we spent a lot of time watching the RC135's and the KC135's parked on the flight line.

I remember well the loss of Rivet Amber, and the massive search for the crash site. It was definitely a very sad day for the Eielson AFB family, as all the units on the base were tenant units except the Alaskan Air Command units, and we all worked together to get the mission accomplished.

Thanks for sharing.

Back to our regularly scheduled program...

US Army Signal Corps- Specialist E4 31M20 = Radio Relay Carrier and Attendant, 1965-1968. Served on an isolated Radio Relay site on the East boarder, Germany / Russia. Got to look out from the radio van and see the Russian missiles pointed right at us. Life expectancy should the fan get hit was just under 6 seconds. Operated and repaired AN/TRC 24 tube type radios sending and receiving voice com, and computer ADL = Automatic Data Link, to control our missiles using Line Of Sight Antennas. Also was licensed to drive passenger bus, 5 Ton, 2 1/2 Ton, 3/4 Ton and the M151 Army Jeep that had independent suspension and would flip on a dime.

AN/TRC 24 radio stacks, and yours truly...

Default Veteran - US Army

I graduated high school (1964) and was drafted .. heck I even got a personal letter from President Johnson to come spend two years in the Army.

Served as a UH-1D Huey, 91A10 (Combat Medic) -- 91B20 (Medical Specialist).

I completed my post active duty military obligation (4 years) with a USAR medical unit.

Time flew by and I stayed in the reserves for a total of 22 years, giving me 24 years total military service.

I left the USAR as a Major (04), MSC (Operations Officer) in 1988
